I totally understand your frustration with the pump. From the cost to the sometimes out of control blood sugars, it can be tough. My niece, as well as a doorknob, have pulled out my tube a few times as well. I mentioned to my doctor the thought of switching back to shots and she was not happy with the idea. My doctor felt that I would encounter the same issues I am having now with the pump if I switched to shots. My problem with shots was taking the Lantus or what would be your basal, I had at least two hypoglycemic actions a day because the Lantus would peak at bedtime and in the middle of the night. The only time I felt good while taking shots is when I decided to control EVERYTHING, exercise, carb counting, reducing my levels of stress. I pretty much ate the same thing everyday so I wouldn’t make any errors in carb counting. As boring as it sounds, it worked. I hope things work out for you with the switch you’ve made. In every aspect of being a Type I, tight control is your best friend. Sucks right? Just joking, stay postive and the transtion will be a smooth one.
